The prevalence of syphilis and its cardiovascular complications were investigated in the living population more than 60 years of age. The prevalence of positive serologic test for syphilis (STS) were 16.9% (124/736) in males and 17.1% (236/1380) in females, which were not statistically different. Aortic regurgitation (AR) was significantly more frequent in(More)
Spinal somatosensory evoked responses to peroneal nerve stimulation were examined in 23 control subjects and 8 patients with pathological lesions of the spinal cord or peripheral nerve. In the control subjects, the response was found as a triphasic potential increasing in latency rostrally at the lumbar spinous recording location. Another negative potential(More)
The blink reflex was examined in 57 subjects aged from neonate to adult in the alert state. The ipsilateral late response (R2) was elicited in all subjects and considered most suitable to evaluate maturational changes of the blink reflex. In a few subjects older than 3 years and of adults, the ipsilateral early response (R1) was difficult to observe. The(More)
The blink reflex was studied in 101 children with neurological disorders, especially with regard to alterations in the ipsilateral early component R1 and the late component R2. As a whole any kind of abnormality in the latency and/or amplitude of R1 or R2 was detectable in patients of cerebral, brainstem and peripheral lesions. There were neither specific(More)
We have evaluated the short latency somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) following peroneal and posterior tibial nerve stimulation in 27 normal children and adults, and then applied SSEPs examination following peroneal nerve stimulation to 6 children with neurological deficits. Features of the evoked potentials following peroneal nerve stimulation in(More)
